英國政府向香港市民提供入籍途徑:我該如何申請?

據估計,預計約有35萬香港人持有英國國民海外護照,這些護照使他們可以免簽證進入英國達6個月。英國政府已經提出草案,將該6個月的期限延長至5年,並允許這些居住在英國並持有英國國民海外護照的人可以在英國工作或學習。五年期滿後,他們可以在申請定居身份(永居)並在之後申請英國國籍。

大約有250萬的香港市民有資格申請英國海外國民護照。英國總理伯里斯·詹森(Boris Johnson)表示,英國將負責保護這些個人權利,使他們可以從英國的新提案中受益。

An estimated figure of 350,000 people in Hong Kong hold British National Overseas passports which currently allow them to enter the UK without a visa for 6 months. The UK government has set draft proposals whereby the 6 month time limit to enter the UK will be removed and extended to a period of 5 years to allow British National Overseas passport holders reside in the UK to work or study. After 5 years, they could apply for settled status (indefinite leave to remain) and in future British Citizenship.

There are a further 2.5 million citizens in Hong Kong who would be eligible to apply for a British Overseas National passport. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has stated that the UK will take responsibility in protecting these rights for the individuals concerned and they also therefore appear to be able to benefit from the proposed UK changes.
